Miranda NG is a reliable Windows instant messaging client, which is built on the basis of the multi-protocol program, Miranda. It is a successor of Miranda, its highlights being the fact that it is lightweight fast and highly customizable, thanks to the multiple supported plug-ins.
Mirnada NG is very similar to its predecessor, Miranda IM. This application has a number of improved features though. It allows you to configure several protocols, from various networks, and supported services include include Facebook, Yahoo, AOL Instant Messenger, Gadu-Gadu, ICQ, Internet Relay Chat, Jabber, MSA, MSN, Skype, Twitter or WhatsApp.
Key features include:
- Contacts import.
- Database encryption.
- Reliable instant messaging tool.
It has support for Facebook, Yahoo, AOL Instant Messenger, Gadu-Gadu, ICQ, Internet Relay Chat, Jabber, MSA, MSN, Skype, Twitter or WhatsApp. It also comes with some really cool features such as database encryption; Miranda NG automatically encrypts your message history. You also have to options to change the level of encryption from the standard level that encodes only passwords or security tokens, or the total level that includes all string settings, events and complete histories.
Overall, Miranda NG is a relatively lightweight, multi protocol instant messenger client that has a good support range. It uses little memory, is extremely fast and is also very customizable; from the menu layout to the chat window or even the message history.
The brand new feature in our database is support for server event IDs, which helps to load server history correctly for Discord, Facebook, Skype & VKontakte protocols. As usual, there's a bunch of another fixes & improvements, you can find the full story here.
Also, we're glad to say that we have the only feature to implement in 0.95: a unified chat window (one window for private & group chats) that can handle these server ids. So it seems that after 0.95.11 we could start 0.96 development with extensive protocol support, according to our roadmap.
